So much THIS!

I love the book.  I hate the movie.

HATED it when I saw it in the theater, expected serious sci-fi.  Watched it years later in a Space Balls / Stripes frame of mind; have been enjoying it ever since.

I liked the original, the sequels were pathetic. The video game I played as a kid would've been great as a movie storyline, They eventually get back to Klendathu and nuke all the queens. The book was nothing like the movie, kind of boring for what I was expecting.

Past research has suggested meteor bombardment of Earth rises and falls in a cycle about 35 million years long. In the past, scientists have proposed a cosmic trigger for this cycle, such as a potential companion star for the sun with the dramatic name "Nemesis"

And when other media outlets write about how climate change is going to kill us all unless we "do something", there's no "fear" there whatsoever. Nope, nothing fearmongering whatsoever about telling the public that people will die without more government controls, more government power.

Well, they like science when they can add the word "could" to a headline and turn it into a conjecture-based imminent disaster.

The sky could be falling ANY MINUTE NOW!!!

Yes. The universe is big and scary. It might throw large planet-killing rocks at us from time to time, or send X-Class flares or Gamma Ray Bursts at us.

I was going to put more here, but it would be irrelevant. Didn't really help these guys to worry:

So, let me see if I can boil this down:

1. We think that a massive object killed off the dinosaurs

2.  We Think that Dark matter exists

3.  We think that maybe there's a disc of dark matter that the sun passes thru on roughly a 35 million year cycle.

4.  They suggest that somehow the dark matter interacts with our Oort Cloud to move primordial matter into a cometary orbit therefore potentially hitting earth.

5.  We are all going to die...

Seriously, should we worry about this or not?  I mean, are we going into the dark disc tomorrow and we need to be on the lookout for the next 1 million years, since comet periods are so slow...hallys is what?  86 years a trip?  You would need a lot of matter, or a lot of trips.

Good old Fox "news" - We misinterpret the science, saving you the trouble of thinking!

Of coarse it's dark matter because space is dark and gooey.

Wait a minute. A disturbance in the Oort cloud, sending comets into the inner solar system, increases our chances of being hit with asteroids? Does Fox News think orbital mechanics is like a pool game? I'll take the 9-3-11 combo, two rails, in the side pocket.

Unlike me, who watched "Starship Troopers" twice, once in the theatre and once on DVD 5 years later.

and it was deliciously punished for that... :)
